i am looking forward to seeing some friends i have not spent time with in far too long. i have not been very good at hanging out or leaving the house lately, as i have been content to hibernate a bit. i have also been super busy sewing up a storm to try and keep up with etsy, and also prepare for a holiday sale that will take part in next weekend. i had some sewing machine issues and had to purchase a temporary replacement to get me through the next few weeks until i have the time and brain space to research a more long term investment. if only a quick trip to target could replace a broken heart as easily as a broken sewing machine.
if you would like to see some madebyhank creations in person, i will have a table at a local holiday sale next sunday, december 20th. i will post more details about what i will have available soon.
you can view all the details and a larger version of the flyer here
i wish i had the time to hop on a train and head to brooklyn on saturday for lena's holiday sale. i would love to see all of those lovely ladies' creations in person, and jenny's preview photos are making me wish now more than ever that there were just a few more hours in the day so i could stop by the sale. maybe i will skip the whole sleeping thing tonight and get everything done and have magic energy and decide that i will head over to brooklyn to check it out. who knows.
